The Best Safelists for October 2022

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Look who’s back!

I’m sorry I have let my safelist blog posts slide over the last few months. I’m still plugging away but I allowed myself some time off to travel this summer. I’m not ashamed to admit that my daily safelist submissions took a backseat to swimming and riding roller coasters.

Now I’m back but since returning I have made some changes to how I use safelists. Namely, I am not worrying as much about these blog posts. I always figured the best way to get a fair comparison of the different mailers was to use the same ad at every site and that’s what I had been doing. Now, I just want results. I am now rotating 6 different ads for 4 different websites. Some are converting better than others but doing this I think allows me to cast a bigger net and attract more prospects. I had been wanting to try this for a while and this seemed like a good time to start. Did it work? Let’s see.

Below are the top-producing safelists of the ones I am currently using. I do have upgraded memberships at some of these safelists. I also still try to spend some time reading ads every day to help get more mailing credits.  The “Sign Ups” below reflect how many people have subscribed to my list or joined my website through one of the ads I promoted.  The sign-ups only come from email ads and do not include banners or login ads.

European Safelist – 9
State of the Art Mailer – 7
List Joe – 3
List Avail – 3
List Adventure – 3

Total September Sign-ups: 38

Not bad. Especially considering I have been spending a lot less time on mailers lately. I did notice the bulk of my sign-ups came from my newest squeeze page. I still think I received more sign-ups overall by diversifying my ads. I think for next month I will continue to do this but put more emphasis on the best-converting pages.

Don’t forget that the mailers that work best for me might not be the best for you.  It depends on what you are promoting and how you are promoting it.  You should be tracking your own ads to find out what works best for you.  For a good link tracker that works with safelists check out HitsConnect.



The Best Safelist Mailers for 2022

Happy New Year!

I had hoped to do another “end of the year” post to highlight the best safelists from last year but because I switched tracking services in the middle of the year and since I  have been testing a lot of different pages over the past few months I simply didn’t feel like I had enough data to do a proper list.

Instead I decided to post a master list of all the safelist mailers I am currently using here at the start of 2022.

The Top 10 Safelists for 2021

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I have been actively involved in safelist marketing since 2007 and have been sharing my monthly stats here since 2008.  Below is a list of what I consider to be the best safelists for 2021.

This is my first time doing a yearly top 10 list.  What I did was I went back through all of my stats from 2020 and compiled all of the data from all of my ad campaigns and ranked them by the total number of conversions I received from them over the year.
These stats came from a combination of lead capture pages that I used to build my list as well as splash pages that I used to promote my own safelist.  Some of the campaigns were good.  Some were not.  I just lumped everything together here to hopefully give a fair example of what the average user could expect.
While all of the safelists below do offer free memberships I often try to buy upgrades when I can afford them.  I also do spend some time most days reading ads from other members so that i can earn enough credits to send my ads to the maximum number of people as often as possible.
Here we go!
Mister Safelist is my baby.  I have owned and operated it since 2011.  It’s a bit of a cheat putting it at the top of this list but since I don’t test it the way I do other safelists there is no way for me to know exactly where it would rank.  I do promote it constantly to bring in new members and while activity remains high I am always looking for new ways to make it better.  After you join all of the sites below I would love to have you join and tell me what you think.

#1 – European Safelist – Hits: 79,628  Sign-ups: 76

European Safelist continues it’s reign at the top of the online safelist charts.   Launched in 2007 with over 16,000 members if you’re looking to get your ads seen fast this is one of the best places to do it.  Upgraded memberships are super cheap and well worth the cost for the ability to send your ads every day.  Highly recommended!


#2 – State Of The Art Mailer – Hits: 32,853  Sign-ups: 47
Email Marketing Evolved!

State Of The Art Mailer uses a unique “button escalation” system that allows you to increase the number of members you can mail by looking at ads.  Free members can reach 500 members every 7 days but can increase that to 3,000 members with their credits.  Upgrades allow you to jump up to higher button levels and email every 3 days.  The top level button upgrades aren’t cheap but even the low levels work great for the number of mails you can send.  This is just a fantastic site that never fails to impress me with how active it’s members are.  Highly recommended!


#3 – ViralURL – Hits: 1,610  Sign-ups: 34

ViralURL specializes in offering advanced shortening, cloaking, and link tracking services.  I don’t really care about any of those things.  All I know is that the “Random Mailer”offered here consistently gives me the highest percentage of sign-ups per emails sent.  Give this one a try and I think you will be just as impressed as I continue to be.


#4 – Leads N Profits – Hits: 10,168  Sign-ups: 30

Leads N Profits had a big launch towards the end of 2019 and it’s momentum carried it well into 2020.  It doesn’t seem to be getting as much attention lately though so I suspect we won’t see this on next year’s list.  However, even at the start of 2021 my emails are still out performing most of the other lists I use.  Try and it and see for yourself.


#6 – Traffic Leads 2 Income VM – Hits: 15,518  Sign-ups: 19

Traffic Leads 2 Income Viral Mailer has the longest title of any safelist on this list.  It also has one of the most passionate owners working tirelessly behind the scenes to help keep activity high.  I like it a lot and I have no problem recommending it to anyone looking for good quality traffic for their ads.


#7 – List Adventure – Hits: 19,924  Sign-ups: 18

List Adventure is one of the oldest safelists on this list.  It’s fun to scroll back to 2013 in the mailing history and see how much traffic my ads generated.  While not as active as it was 8 years ago there are still more active members here than most of the newer lists I use.  Well worth joining if you’re not already a member.


#8 – List Avail – Hits: 13,600 Sign-ups: 18
Join ListAvail.com

List Avail features “bonus views” for upgraded members that show your ads to other members after they use the mailer.  This boosts your CTR% and keeps your ads in front of the most active members.  This is a quality safelist from top to bottom.


#9 – TezzerMail – Hits: 9,211 Sign-ups: 16

TezzerMail not only has the distinction of being operated by the team who designed the LFMVM mailer script that most modern safelists run on today but their many years of experience in the traffic exchange industry is what makes this one of the best safelists around today. I feel like I have only scratched the surface of what is available here so expect to see this one rise for me over the new year.


#10 – List Nerds – Hits: 5,377 Sign-ups: 16

List Nerds was relaunched in 2020 as part of the Click, Track, Profit network of sites. Thanks to this addition the site has been infused with new life that has resulted in increased activity and higher response rates. Keep an eye on this one and watch it continue to grow into 2021.


And that’s my list!  Please note that I don’t use every safelist out there and there are probably some great ones that’s I’ve never heard of.  Feel free to leave any recommendations in the comments and let me know what you think of my list.  I’d love to hear from you!



The Best Safelists for April 2020

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to April.

Boy, a lot sure can happen in a month.  With the Coronavirus bearing down hard on the whole world I hope everyone reading this is staying home and staying safe.

It probably goes without saying that the long-term effects of this virus on the global economy are going to be bigger than anyone ever imagined.  What this means for our business is still hard to say.  I think as more people get laid off from their jobs and others just choose to work from home we are going to see a massive influx of people looking for ways to make money online.  It’s not going to happen over night but I think by the end of the summer we will start seeing a lot more people coming into our marketplace.

In short, now is definitely the time to start getting our businesses ready for all of the new people who are going to be looking for ways to make money working from home.

Now let’s get to the safelists.  No major launches last month to report but I have some interesting stats for you below.

The stats below are the top results from my marketing efforts in March.  I currently use 40-50 different mailers every day (or as often as I can) and I am currently promoting a simple lead capture page that I am using to build my list. The “Signups” below show how many people have subscribed to my list and verified their email address.  I do have an upgraded membership at most of the mailers I use which often allows me to send my ads more often to more members.  However, I do spend a lot of time every month reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
European Safelist 5874 52.00% 7 0.12%
Traffic Leads 2 Income 2062 29.00% 4 0.19%
Viral URL 122 77.00% 4 3.28%
List Nerds 713 67.00% 2 0.28%
The Lead Magnet 279 56.00% 2 0.72%

Total March Sign-ups: 34

Last month I mentioned that my ad was probably getting a little stale as I had been running it for several months and my stats kept going down.  Rather than start from scratch I wanted to see how much of an effect my safelist email would have on getting new sign-ups.  So, I kept the same landing page but wrote a new email with a new subject.  With just this one change I went from 24 sign-ups in February to 34 sign-ups in March.  That’s a pretty big boost considering my landing page stayed exactly the same.  For April I am going to take it a step further and try rotating different subject lines at each safelist to see if the variety attracts more attention.

Will it work?  Check back next month to find out!


The Best Safelists for March 2020

Happy March!

Life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

February was a rather slow month for me but we did have one brand new mailer lunch that has been getting a lot of attention.  That is “Results Mailer” from Greg Hickman.  What makes Results Mailer unique is that there are no upgrades to buy!  All members use the site completely free which puts everyone on equal footing.

I was skeptical of this model at first but I am still seeing Results Mailer being promoted everywhere and my CTR for emails there have been close to 10%.  I’m curious to see how this will work out long-term but for now I think Results Mailer is worth joining.

Below you will find my personal safelist marketing stats from February 2020.  I regularly submit my ads to about 40 different safelists and viral list mailers.  I am currently promoting a lead capture page that I use to build my email list.  The “Sign Ups” below reflect how many people have subscribed to my list through my advertised link and verified their email address.  I do have upgraded memberships at a lot of these sites which allow to me to send my ads more often but I do still spend a lot of time reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.  I don’t use every mailer out there but I do often cycle out less responsive lists to try new ones.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
State of the Art Mailer 2751 60.00% 4 0.15%
Viral URL 209 74.00% 3 1.44%
Traffic Leads 2 Income 2099 27.00% 3 0.14%
Leads N Profits 960 48.00% 2 0.21%
Trend Mails 2206 32.00% 2 0.09%

Total February Sign-ups: 24

Not a very good month for me at all.  In fact I received half as many sign-ups as January.  I believe the reason for this is because I have been using the exact same ad two months in a row and it is simply getting stale.  This month I am going to continue running the same capture page but change up my list subjects and emails to see if that helps.  If not I will switch to something completely new for April.

Remember, keep those ads fresh!



The Best Safelists for February 2020

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Welcome to February!

I’ve got a couple of new launches to announce and a whole bunch of stats to share with you so let’s get started…

First up is probably the biggest surprise I have seen in awhile as it is more of an unexpected re-launch.  That’s right.  Like a phoenix with thick glasses rising from the ashes comes List Nerds!  This was a hot site a few years ago but died off when TimTech went under.  It’s back now under the Click, Track Profit banner with a new design and some cool new features.  Check out the new auto send feature that let’s you schedule 7 weekly emails to be automatically sent for you every day of the week.  Join List Nerds Here!

Next is World Traffic Mailer which is so new I haven’t even tried it yet.  I just joined it an hour ago because I have been seeing Steve Ayling promoting it everywhere.  Steve is an owner that I know, like, and trust so this was an easy sell for me.  World Traffic Mailer features a unique “Referral Build’em” module which will automatically promote your referral link when you click at least 25 emails.  Who doesn’t want free referrals?  This one is for sure worth checking out.

That’s all for the new launches, now let’s move on to the stats…

As usual the stats below came from the 40 or so safelists and viral list mailers that I use almost every day to promote my sites.  For the month of January I switched back to promoting a unique squeeze page that I had been promoting a few months ago which was starting to go stale.  I wanted to see if taking a few months off would help to revive it.  The “Signups” listed below are the number of people who subscribed to my mailing list through the page I am promoting and verified their email address.  While there are many other safelists out there these are the ones I use.  These stats show only the number of new members received by using the “credit mailer” and do not include and banner or login ads.  I also like to point out that I am upgraded at most of these sites and spend a lot of time reading emails to earn enough credits to send my ads.  My own Mister Safelist does not appear on this list but it should always be assumed that Mister Safelist is awesome.

European Safelist 5422 53.00% 6 0.11%
State of the Art Mailer 2522 61.00% 5 0.16%
Adchiever 464 59.00% 4 0.86%
Viral URL 137 80.00% 4 2.92%
TezzerMail 804 51.00% 3 0.37%
Leads N Profits 1057 55.00% 3 0.28%
Banner Blitz Mailer 880 45.00% 2 0.23%
List Nerds 334 54.00% 2 0.60%

Total January Sign-ups: 46

As usual European Safelist tops the list of the most effective mailers I use.  If you haven’t joined this one yet I don’t know what you are waiting for.

Don’t forget that the stats above are provided only to show which mailers are currently working best for me at this time.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know what sites work best for you is to track your own ads.



The Best Safelists for January 2020

Happy New Year!

Well, we made it to 2020.  It’s safe to say that the last decade was quite spectacular in regards to safelist marketing.  We saw lots of new innovations in the way mailers have let us advertise our sites.  Some great launches and more than a few set backs too.  As we go forward I continue to be most optimistic about the potential for this industry and all of the good things yet to come from it.

Now let’s get to some stats…

I took a bit of a step backwards last month.  I had been advertising a new lead capture page in safelists that was converting quite well at first but began slowing down after it’s second month.  I decided to give the page the month of December off and go back to promoting splash pages for my own Mister Safelist.  Splash pages almost never convert as well as a good lead capture page so naturally there was a drop in sign-ups compared to previous months.  I am going to go back to promoting the lead capture page again this month and see if the stats have improved over last time since hopefully it will appear fresh to new members and those who haven’t seen it.

During the month of December I used my daily safelist mailings to promote splash pages for Mister Safelist.  My stats are generated from using only the credit mailers and do not include login ads or banners ads or anything like that.  I am upgraded at most of these sites and do spend time every day reading emails to earn credits.  I currently submit to 40-50 different safelists.  I don’t use every safelist out there and I am constantly updating that list based on my advertising results.  I do not include my own Mister Safelist here as I prefer to let other reviewers take care of that.  I provide these stats only to show what is currently working best for me.  Your results may vary.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
State of the Art Mailer 2682 59.00% 5 0.19%

Trend Mails 2137 30.00% 3 0.14%
Responsive Mail Marketing 690 47.00% 2 0.29%

Total December Sign-ups: 32

That’s all for now.  Please note that the stats above are provided only to show what is working best for me.  What works best for you might be something entirely different.  The only way to know what sites work best for you is to track your own ads.



The Best Safelists for December 2019

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy December and Happy Monday!

I’m going to keep it quick this month as I am still trying to get caught up from a long holiday weekend.

Every month I share the stats I obtained from my previous month of safelist advertising.  I use safelists almost every day throughout the month to send email ads promoting various pages I am promoting.

Last month I used all of my traffic to promote a lead capture page giving away a free ebook called “No More 9-5“.  The stats below reflect the number of people who saw my page and subscribed to my list.  I used about 40 different safelists throughout the month to send my ads.  While I do have upgraded memberships at most of the safelists I use I still spend a lot of time clicking credit links to send my ads to more people.  These stats were obtained using only the standard credit mailer and do not include banner ads, login ads, etc.

Total November Sign-ups: 39

Big drop from last month.  I think a lot of that is caused by promoting the same page two months in a row.  It pays to keep things fresh so I am going to back to promoting Mister Safelist for the rest of this month.  I’ll pull this ad back out in January and see if taking a month off will make it appear new again.

Thank you for checking out my blog.  If you have any questions or just like what you see here please leave a comment below.



The Best Safelists for November 2019

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy November!

So another month is in the books.  I just want to thank everyone for being an active reader here and for being an active member of the safelist community.  I’ve got lots of stuff to report this month including a bunch of a new mailer launches and a big change to what I have been promoting.  Let’s get to it…

A few big launches to report this month.  The first, and probably the biggest, is from long time owner Greg Hickman who last week launched Banner Blitz Mailer.  BBM offers a unique feature that rewards active members with lots of free banner advertisements.  Because of Greg’s history in the mailer industry his new site is currently getting a lot of attention from a lot other owners.  After a week the current membership sits at 528 members.

Next up is a new program from Pro Trend Marketing called Synergy Mails.   The owners of this one decided to skip usually JV marketing blitz and let the members build the site themselves.  That means the site is growing a little slower than normal but I love the nice clean design and Pro Trend Marketing’s other sites have always worked great for me.  After 3 weeks the current membership is at 371 members.

 Last but not least is a new mailer from owners Elizabeta Kuzevska and Albie Derbyshire called AE Mailer.  This one also launched about 3 weeks ago but it is growing fast.  It offers instant commissions and is currently at 714 members.  If you are looking for something different this is definitely one to check out.

 That’s it for the new launches.  Now, let’s get to my monthly stats…

I felt like my ads were starting to get a little stale so I decided to mix things up a bit last month.  I basically started from scratch with a new list, a new offer, a new squeeze page, and a new email ad.  The results definitely paid off and I think proved that while there are still a lot of new people joining safelists every month it’s still a good idea to keep your ads fresh if you want to keep attracting new people.  I am thinking I will do another blog post later this month detailing how I created this new list but for now let’s just focus on the stats.

As usual I promote my ads to about 40 different safelists every month.  I do have a lot of upgraded memberships but I still spend a lot of time clicking every day to try and send my ads to as many people as possible as often as possible.  If you want to see a sample of the page I am currently promoting in safelists you can click here. The “Sign Ups” below reflect how many people have confirmed their email address after opting in to my list.  The sign-ups only come from email ads and do not include banners or login ads.

That’s all for now.  Check back in a few weeks and hopefully I will have some detailed info for you about exactly how I achieved these stats.  Until then don’t forget that the stats I share here on this page are only provided to show what mailers are currently working best for me.  What works best for you and your ads might be something entirely different.  The only way to know for sure is to track your owns ads!

Here we go again!

I was hoping things would pick up at the end of the summer. While I haven’t crunched all of the numbers yet it sure looks like things have. Conversions are up as well as activity around all of my websites. I hope everyone is keeping busy and taking advantage of this like I am.

No major news to report in the industry. Personally I have been working on setting up a new email list which I started promoting today. It should be interesting to see how promoting something new will affect my stats for next month. As far as this month goes there has been some pretty big shifts in the top sites so let’s get right to it.

The stats you see below are gathered from the 30-40 different safelists and mailers that I use to promote my ads every month. I am currently promoting a few rotating lead capture pages for my book Safelist Marketing Tactics. While I do have upgraded memberships at many of these safelists I also spend a lot of time every month reading ads to earn enough credits to send my own emails as often as possible. The stats below were acquired using only the credit mailers on the safelists and do not include sign-ups from banner ads or login ads. The “sign-ups” represent the number of people who have subscribed to my list and verified their email address. These stats are provided only to show what is currently working best for me and my ads. Your results my vary.
